ASICS Mat Control- No Better Way to Rule the Mat

ASICS knows that wrestlers want to be able to have a good looking and stylish shoe that is able to dominate the mat with its flexibility, grip, and durability. The Mat Control effectively does that by coming in a multitude of colorways, extremely high-quality build, and an awesome price point. ASICS came ready with this release to give its wearers the complete package of performance with the new Mat Control.

Ever heard of a guy named Cael Sanderson? If you haven’t, he is known for designing some really popular and very effective wrestling shoes. Oh, and also winning four undefeated NCAA titles and Olympic gold medals. While there aren’t any new editions of the Cael currently available, the new Mat Control is extremely similar to the past Cael that fans loved. Starting with the soles of the Mat Control, they are extremely similar to the soles of the Cael V7.0 and the Dan Gable Ultimate 4. The hybrid sole gets extremely good grip on all parts of the mat and is also the most flexible yet heavy-duty design that ASICS offers. The Mat Control also features a very durable fabric midsole that allows for very high durability both in the practice room and on the competition mat. Sporting added ankle support, high height, and large mesh panels, ASICS kept both comfort and breathability at the forefront with the Mat Control. To close off, the top of the shoe is a very sleek with a Velcro-less lace pocket that will keep your laces cleanly tucked away with no Velcro scratching during go time.

When wrestling with pun ideas for the ASICS Mat Control, it proved to be no easy task. Not that the Mat Control can’t be joked about, but maybe it shouldn’t be joked about. The Mat Control frankly means business and proves it can go to work on the mat. With its high-cut ankle supporting build, flex grip soles, and durable upper, the Mat Control is a no-nonsense shoe that can be great for both the beginners and elite level athletes. Along with its rainbow of colors and affordable price point, the Mat Control is ready to run your opponents out of the circle.

    The ASICS MatControl has great traction and flexibility. Split sole design similar to the Dan Gable Evo, so it has to be good! It has mesh around the middle of the shoe so it may breathe easier and stink less.

    Loses traction quickly in my experience, but doesnt completely become useless. It is still solid after about five weeks of practice 5/7 days a week

    Hello my son wants to know how flexible these shoes are?

    The Mat Control are a good shoe. The shoe has a split sole which makes it very flexible. This shoe is new this year but similar to the Cael V7, which is an awesome lightweight and flexible shoe.

    Are these the cael v8s?

    They were called the Cael V8.0. ASICS changed the name of the shoe to Mat Control, but has all the same features as the Cael V8.0
